Stations of the Cross

After a battle with the wind the Stations of the Cross are now erected in the church garden. The 14 stations or prayer stops tell the story of Jesus' condemnation, trial and execution. Each station charts a particular point in the story such as Jesus taking up his cross, falling for three times, being helped by Simon of Cyrene, meeting his mother and dying. As one journeys along the way of the cross one is encouraged to read the meditations and to pray for those similarly treated in our world.

Step by painful step he walks, carrying his cross. He trips and falls, his face hits the ground, the pain in his body is agony. Onlookers laugh and jeer as he struggles to carry on. How often have we laughed at the misfortune of others? When have we failed to offer a helping hand for fear or criticism? Help us Christ to see the least of our brothers and sisters in you and to reach out to help them when they need us.

The garden is open 24/7.
